11years ago, Boca Raton aftercare administrator Chris Carraba knocked out a few songs on his acoustic during some down time at work. He went home, recorded them and made 4 cassette copies. One of the cassettes landed in the hands of teenage record mogul Amy Fiddler, who annoyed Carraba into recording more songs in that vein and letting her put "The Swiss Army Romance" out under the name Dashboard Confessional.
The rest is music history. Dashboard Confessional went from opening for Carraba's other band, Further Seems Forever, to becoming the biggest Emo act on earth. Before you could say "emo backlash" Dashboard Confessional was selling millions of records and writing the theme to Spiderman 2.
Tonight, Carraba is following the suit of acts like Megadeth by performing Swiss Army Romance in its entirety. It's a good ploy. He gets to take advantage of short term nostalgia and have an excuse to play some of his strongest material.
Tonight at Revolution, you can expect lots of acoustic sing-alongs and 25 year old girls "screaming infidelities" like teenagers. Think of it as an innoculation against the upcoming Basel invasion of cooler-than-thou hipsters.
